U.S. Government Moves To Shut Down World’s Biggest Online Poker Companies
Federal prosecutors today unsealed a sweeping indictment against Isai Scheinberg and Raymond Bitar, founders of the world’s biggest online poker companies, and moved to try to shut down their businesses.
I was disgusted with Bill Frist, the former Republican majority leader in the senate, when he snuck the UIGEA into law in 2006. I had some hope that this would be reversed with the likes of Harry Reid and Barney Frank opposed to restrictions on online poker. It looks like they are going through with this travesty.
